Sounds like we was on the Lincoln at the same time. I'm a Plankowner and left in March of 91. I was in the weapons department "W" division. Rode her around the horn to Alameda. We may went through the Shellback initiation together.

Your the first person that I've run across that was also on the Indy. I was on her from 82-85. Did 3 Med cruises and a North Atlantic.

Were you on board when the day before we were to pull into the Philippines, Mt. Pinotubo erupted? Had not erupted for over 500 years. What a mess.

I was a a marine passenger on the USS Debuque, we pulled in weeks after the eruption. I agree, it was a total mess.

I have seen that term "plankowner" many times, what does that mean? My husband was USN too. He served on the USS RANGER 1967-69.

dmac1951 05-10-2016 02:40 PM

The term "plankowner" refers to the first crew or members aboard a newly commissioned ship.
